Due to the impact of COVID-19, our community is faced with an unprecedented need for support. #GivingTuesdayNow is an opportunity to come together to create a wave of generosity and unity to help take care of income-challenged families and isolated seniors in the community. Due to the cancellation of our events and fundraisers, we rely on the generosity of our community through donations to help support our programs and services. All donations made will go towards programs that are deemed essential during this time, such as senior nutrition programs like Meals on Wheels and Frozen Meals, our Food Bank and our new Shopping 4 Seniors program.

Ancaster Community Services is a volunteer-powered, grassroots community charity, established in 1969. The original mandate was to provide community information and local tourism. Over the years, our charity has become a provider of several social assistance programs used by low-income families and isolated seniors within the Ancaster area. We provide nutritional assistance such as Meals on Wheels delivered to seniors' doors, Frozen Meals, emergency food assistance and Good Food Boxes full of fresh produce. As part of our COVID-19 Emergency Response we started a NEW Shopping 4 Seniors program that helps local seniors (with limited assistance or mobility) phone in grocery orders to be delivered to their home.

One small act of generosity can make a big difference. On #GivingTuesdayNow, let's stand together to help support our community through this difficult time.
